Brad can provide specialised facilitation. Providing skilled professional facilitation to work with you to get the best out of the time and the people in your meetings and events or to train you and your team to develop your skills and confidence in the design and faciltiation of meetings.
Brad was our keynote speaker at our UK National Conference in 2017 and had phenomenal feedback, scoring a perfect 5 from everyone in the room! This has never happened before for us and makes him an easy choice to bring back again this year. Specifically, Brad listened hard to our brief, dug deep on our needs and then worked with us to ensure his keynote dovetailed with our culture and strategy. He designed the session so that it was interactive, high energy and lots of fun whilst delivering our key messages in a memorable way which we have now adopted and embedded in our business. It is unusual to find a keynote speaker who really hones in on the heartbeat of a business and that’s what we found in Brad."

“I have to say, the impact his programs and the philosophies he holds, have had an absolutely transformational impact on my team.
He instills authenticity and inspiration into my customer managers’ style of delivery of many high value commercial propositions. Brad also really spikes in his ability to deliver creative and distinctive Sales Conferences.
His innovative mindset has the impact of taking often dry commercial and corporate messages and landing them with the delegate with a powerful and thought provoking, but at the same time, simple and actionable impact. My people love working with Brad because of the guidance and coaching he affords them.”
